									    IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING COLLECTION OF STUDENTS FROM
                  SCHOOL TODAY 13 January 2010.

A big thank you to those students who have managed to brave the inclement
weather and attend school today. When making the decision to open, we
took the view that we would like to support as many parents and students as
possible by trying to open for either learning or recreation. We were
particularly concerned to try to put in place year 10 and 11 learning, as they
have already lost vital time in exam and course work preparation. We have
had a productive morning for year 10 and 11, with all students getting an
opportunity to work on laptops or PCs in coursework or revision. Following
this they were able to follow their options timetable up until lunch time.

ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE REST OF TODAY
Although Met Office forecast is for snow to stop later today, road
conditions continue to worsen. All students will be offered lunch as
normal from 12.30 until 1.00pm. At 1.00 we will register each year
group in a main hall, and offer them an opportunity to leave school
at that point. We will therefore be closed from 1.00pm for the rest
of the afternoon. Any Parents who cannot make arrangements for
students to leave at this point may be assured that we will
accommodate their children safely until 3.30 as normal. At 1.00
therefore we will be seeking parental permission to release their
child/children, this will be achieved through students contacting
their own Parents by mobile ‘phone where possible, and if this isn’t
possible, we will be making a call from the school office. Once
permission is achieved, students will wait for pick up in the G block
foyer, or alternatively walk home if that is the agreed arrangement.

It is always difficult to make the decision to close a school, I have
much appreciated the support and positive encouragement
received from staff, students and Parents during this time. As usual,
text messaging and website will inform you of tomorrow’s decision.
Best wishes, Sue Woodrow
